‘Phantom Thread’ Trailer: You Can Sew Almost Anything Into The Canvass of a Coat

Man. I read the synopsis for Phantom Thread, the latest collaboration between writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson and actor Daniel Day-Lewis, and was like. No thanks. But then I watched the trailer, and I guess I didn’t know what else I was expecting, but I was instantly sold.

‘Inherent Vice’ Trailer: A Glorious Drug-Fueled Detective Tale

Inherent Vice

I haven’t read Inherent Vice. Let me get that out of the way. I haven’t. I just haven’t. So if I’m way off on my upcoming assertion, yeah whatever. But watching the trailer for this flick, it seems like Paul Thomas Anderson by way of the Coen Brothers. And I mean that in the absolutely best way possible. Sign me up.

‘THE MASTER’ Farts In Xenu’s Face

There are few films with more buzz surrounding them this year than Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master – his first film since 2007’s cynical masterpiece There Will Be Blood. The rumors boiling online that it’s a fictionalized look at the origins of Scientology have fueled controversy – peaking when word spread that the church’s shit-eating poster boy Tom Cruise “has issues” with the film.

But the film is not an expose on Scientology and certainly not an attack on its sci-fi theology. Although nearly everyone in the film is a member of a blooming, controversial cult, PTA only uses Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard as a loose framework to stage his perplexing and brilliant character study set in post-World War II America. At this point, PTA’s grasp of cinematic expression is ridiculous. Every shot, every camera movement is sharp and profound. As with There Will Be Blood, The Master grips you by the balls before a single line of dialogue is spoken, which doesn’t happen until several minutes in. Once Joaquin Phoenix opens his mouth…game over, man.

‘THE MASTER’ CLIP: Letter writing misery folk.

This new clip for The Master is showing off the unnerving world that PT Anderson is building in his latest opus. If the film follows the promotional clips, then we’re going to be in for one uncomfortably hypnotic descent.
